The Pittsburgh Steelers released their Week 13 inactive report, and wide receiver Antonio Brown will play on Monday Night Football against the Cincinnati Bengals. He is not 100 percent due to a toe injury that cost him Friday’s practice. He was listed as questionable and a game-time decision, but it worked out for him and the Steelers.
Fantasy implications: Brown might be a little bit limited, but he is a must-start for fantasy owners, regardless. We don’t know if he will play fewer snaps, or if Ben Roethlisberger will look toward JuJu Smith-Schuster and Martavis Bryant more, but Antonio Brown is a guy you start if he is active.
He does face a tough matchup, even if healthy. The Bengals have given up the second fewest fantasy points to wide receivers on a per game basis. They have given up a touchdown every other game, and are coming off no touchdowns by Cleveland Browns wide receivers. Maybe Brown can get on the board on Monday.
